Recap


Stars 4, Oilers 1: Jaromir Jagr scored his 669th career goal to move past Luc Robitaille for sole possession of 10th place on the NHL's all-time list as visiting Dallas secured its fourth consecutive victory.

Eric Nystrom tallied 44 seconds into the third period to snap a tie and Kari Lehtonen turned aside 35 shots to improve to 9-1-0 in his last 10 games versus Edmonton.

Taylor Hall opened the scoring and Devan Dubnyk finished with 25 saves for the Oilers, who fell to 1-3-3 in their last seven games.

After defenseman Brenden Dillon forged a 1-1 tie early in the second period, Nystrom gave Dallas its first lead early in the third. Nystrom's shot from the point was inadvertently tipped by Edmonton's Ryan Nugent-Hopkins before caroming off the post and into the net.

Jagr scored from the slot with 4:35 left and Ryan Garbutt cleaned up a rebound to cap the scoring nearly two minutes later.

GAME NOTEBOOK: Jagr netted the overtime winner and Lehtonen made 27 saves in a 3-2 win over the Oilers last Wednesday. ... Dillon leveled the contest at 1-1 just 4:23 into the second period when his shot caromed off the glass before bouncing down Dubynk's back and into the net. ... After seeing his ice time reduced over the last few games, Edmonton LW Ryan Smyth was a healthy scratch for Tuesday's contest.
